The Blue Knight wrote:History Channel had a show on last night about Vlad Dracol and his building campaign, and Bran Castle was featured, though no mention about it's status. They said he was a guest there. The castle Maedros calls Arges was called "Porenia" (phoenetic, probably mispelled) and they stressed that it was "the real Castle Dracula." Turgovista (phoenetic, ibid.) and several smaller sites were discussed. This is an area I am largely ignorant of, so I found it very interesting.

Insurance company CSR:Was anyone injured?
Vlad:Not yet, but I'll stake my claim shortly.
Insurance company CSR:Do you have a mason in mind to take your castle to for an estimate.
Vlad:Yes, I'll be taking it to Ianescu's Siege and Collsion shop.
Insurance company CSR:Was there body damage?
Insurance company CSR:Can you describe it?
Vlad: Right through the middle.
Insurance company CSR:Can you describe the siege?
Vlad:Yeah, this stupid Ottoman turned his army right into me! He didn't even use his flag-signaling system! I even spilled blood on my seat. Do you know what it costs to get blood out of upholstery? Jerk!
LOL! This is an ersatz Python moment!
